Proud again

Posted by Rick , 12 April 2013 · 2013 views

My little girl took a hard fall in her skate, a painful one, but she got herself back together and managed to score a bronze. Looks like she just caught a rut in the ice. You can see the pain and disappointment in her face. I'm proud she fought through it.

Proud of my girl

Posted by Rick , 06 February 2013 · 1689 views

Proud of my girl I haven't watched my daughter skate for a long time. I had a chance this morning and was amazed at how her skill level has increased. I stood at ice level and was awestruck by her powerful yet graceful movements. Sure she has many elements to improve on, and there is no expectation for an Olympic medal, but she is certainly getting to a level that is quit...


My Cyber-Christmas Form Letter

Posted by Rick , 21 December 2012 · 886 views

I haven't been on here as much this year. I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season.In the new year, probably around mid January, we'll update the forum software. It won't look much different but there will be some additional bells and whistles floating around. I will give everyone ample warning prior to starting that maintenance pr...

Time sure flies. November 14 will be our 25th wedding anniversary. June 9 1985 was our first date. We went to a BC Lions vs Calgary Stampeders football game.

Friends gave us a wedding gift of two tickets to the 19...

Sinclair to be Canadian Olympic flag-bearer

Posted by Rick , 12 August 2012 · 1117 views

Where were you when Sidney Crosby scored the 'golden goal" to win the 2010 Olympic hockey gold medal? Or when Wayne Gretzky scored 5 goals in one game to notch his 50th of the season in just 39 games? And if you're as old as me one can ask where were you when Paul Henderson scored his 3rd game-winning goal in 1972 to win the Canada-Russia Supe...


Told our daughter about IVF

Posted by Rick , 03 June 2012 · 2069 views

We've been thinking about telling our daughter about IVF. To date I've felt it has been too complex to describe and for her to gain any real grasp of what infertility is and how IVF can help (how she came into the world). 6 days short of her 11th birthday I felt today was the day. I used the OnInfertileGround movie trailer  to help explain how she...


Birth of FSH Protocol and the HCG Trigger

Posted by Rick , 29 May 2012 · 1050 views

In IVF a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is used to promote growth of multiple follicles for a controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH). Common known brand name COH drugs include Gonal F and Follistim, which mimic natural FSH. Follicle growth is monitored, and as follicles approach maturity an injectable Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is used as a...


Fertility Patients Bill of Rights

Posted by Rick , 15 April 2012 · 1682 views

As we know, most of the Assisted Human Reproduction Act in Canada was struck down as unconstitutional in 2010. The portion of the Act that remains valid refers to prohibited activities (although I don't believe they have been challenged at the Supreme Court level).Patients requiring third-party services are now stuck between a rock and a hard place. T...


The Caliginous Cosmos of ART

Posted by Rick , 14 April 2012 · 1242 views

What do you get when you cross IVF with surrogacy to create a news story? My money is on a reference to a 'Murky World'. All the murkiness I would suggest journalists change it up alittle to keep things fresh and dreary. Thesaurus.com is a good reference.Murky: adjective Definition:...
